Have a Seat...

...and enjoy a book, mocha, and the view!
So I have this cute window seat on my stairway - the general consensus from some is that this house was even designed around this seat.  I always wanted a cozy spot to sit, read, and look out the window, and when we built this house it was one of the things that we were able to put in this house.  There were other things that I had to whittle from my list of wants.  

Since moving in our house almost 5 years ago, this little bench has been rather hard.  It was never a huge priority to make it into what I had envisioned.  I've had this red fabric for years - purchased for curtains, but when the sun shown through the rosy glow was just too much.  I cut 2 pieces of memory foam out of an old mattress topper for the 'guts,' and the sewed up a casing!

It needs a pillow - which I have but was being used for something very important by the little people in this house.  And when they are quiet and entertained I do NOT mess with that.
 The biggest boy in this house has sat here almost every day since the cushion appeared {that is what they think}, and it makes me wonder why I never gathered all the supplies and did this years ago.  It seriously took me less than 2 hours to finish!
So now I am off to surf the web and relax in my lovely little nook.
Have a great day.
